Sector sets another record for production output in 2015 For 2016, the German machine tool industry is cautiously optimistic. “We’re expecting moderate growth of 1 per cent in 2016,” says Dr. Heinz-Jürgen Prokop, Chairman of the VDW (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association), speaking at the organisation’s annual press conference in Frankfurt am Main. This prognosis is based on capital investment from the major customer sectors, global figures for machine tool consumption, and finally the order bookings at Germany’s machine tool manufacturers.   For the investments, Oxford Economics, the VDW’s forecasting partner, was in the autumn of last year expecting a global increase of 4 per cent. The principal drivers are traditionally the automotive industry, followed by the electrical engineering and electronics industries, metal product manufacturers, and the mechanical engineering sector. Machine tool consumption

CeMAT SOUTHEAST ASIA debuts in Indonesia in February 2017 Parallel events TransAsia Jakarta and ColdChain Indonesia Deutsche Messe and international trade fair company ITE Group are co-organizing the premier of CeMAT SOUTHEAST ASIA from 28 February to 3 March 2017. CeMAT SOUTHEAST ASIA runs parallel to TransAsia Jakarta and ColdChain Indonesia at the Indonesia Convention Exhibition Center (ICE) in Jakarta. ICE is operated by Deutsche Messe and comprises 10 exhibition halls on 50,000 square meters, a 50,000-square-meter open-air site, a 4,000-square-meter convention hall, and a 12,000-square-meter pre-function lobby. “With ICE, Deutsche Messe operates Southeast Asia’s biggest and most modern exhibition facility. Over the years, the region has developed into one of the world’s most important logistics hubs and offers outstanding business opportunities to logistics companies,” said Dr. Andreas Gruchow, member of the managing

First Compliance Verification Process for Ethernet ECUs

RUETZ SYSTEM SOLUTIONS provides the first compliance verification process for Ethernet ECUs

RUETZ SYSTEM SOLUTION Performs Implementation of OPEN ALLIANCE TC8 Test Specification RUETZ SYSTEM SOLUTIONS – experts in automotive data communication – provides the first compliance verification process for Ethernet ECUs accomplishing the OPEN ALLIANCE TC8 Test Specification. ”With IP/Ethernet technology in cars moving closer to realization, excellent quality and cost effectiveness of all components is mandatory,” stated Wolfgang Malek, General Manager and Co-Founder of RUETZ SYSTEM SOLUTIONS. ”The system specifications of whole board nets underlie enormous changes. Thus, Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers have to do their best to implement these new requirements reliably and right on time.” Through the compliance verification process, RUETZ SYSTEM SOLUTIONS introduces standardized test methods in order to bring new automotive standards together with reliable and stable systems. The compliance verification process provides an ecosystem

New President at Mesago

Martin Roschkowski

As of February 1, 2016, Dipl.-Ing. Martin Roschkowski (50) joins the Board of Management of Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH and its subsidiaries Mesago Messemanagement GmbH and Mesago PCIM GmbH. Continuing the proven success of dual leadership at the company, he will lead together with co-president Petra Haarburger. Martin Roschkowski takes over the reins from Johann Thoma, who will be taking up his new role at the Messe Frankfurt headquarters as of May 2016, after nine years at the head of Mesago. In Martin Roschkowski, Mesago is gaining an experienced manager. For the last ten years, he has held the role of Managing Director at Xylem Water Solutions Deutschland GmbH. Before that, the qualified electrical engineer served as a head of department for a number of years at Weidmüller Interface, where he

Mass-produced underwater vehicles

There has never been so much human activity in the depths of the oceans. Several thousand meters below the surface, oil companies are prospecting for new deposits and deep-sea mining companies are looking for valuable mineral resources. Then there are the thousands of kilometers of pipelines and submarine cables that need regular maintenance. Not to mention the marine scientists who would like to be able to use robust devices to survey large areas of the ocean floor. All these applications mean there is a growing demand for underwater exploration vehicles. To meet this demand, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation IOSB in Ilmenau and Karlsruhe have designed a powerful autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) capable of being manufactured in large numbers. Companies have been using AUVs

[#HM2016] Adjusting production processes in real time

Industry 4.0 requires comprehensive data collection in order to control highly automated process sequences in complex production environments. One example is the cultivation of living cells. But digitalizing and networking biotech production equipment is a huge challenge: relevant standards have yet to be established, and biology has a dynamic all its own. Using fully automated equipment for producing stem cells, Fraunhofer researchers have managed to adjust the process control to cell growth – delivering an adaptive system that is suitable for use in a number of sectors. The term industry 4.0 is generally associated with the manufacturing of cars, machinery or industrial goods. But, as the partners (see box) in the StemCellFactory collaborative project show, the comprehensive networking of machines and products is also making headway in biotechnology. This is a

[#CeBIT 2016] Medical monitor with eyes and ears

In intensive care Units (ICU), every second counts. In emergencies, doctors and nurses need to make the right decisions quickly. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a smart „proxemic monitor“ which has optimized the processes in the most sensitive area of a hospital and clearly shows the data of the connected medical devices while avoiding false alarms. The screen can be controlled from a distance, without contact, by means of gestures and voice commands, thereby reducing the risk of transmitting pathogens. Everything had just been quiet in the control room of the intensive care unit. Suddenly, though, there is excitement: the alarms on several medical devices in different rooms are sounding. Monitors are flashing and beeping. A drop in blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmia – the computer monitors show exactly what has to be

5-axis competence and precision. Process dependability included.

Current discussions about 5-axis machining centres are ongoing. Whilst some sceptics claim that more challenging programming or higher demands on the machine and the control speak against the technology, insiders emphasise the benefits of faster machining resulting in savings potentials plus higher precision and reduced tool wear due to shorter milling paths. That is also why HELLER placed the focus on this particular technology during WerkTage 2014, being already the 7th edition of this event. With seven machining centres live in action, guided plant tours and moderated panel discussions, the event was again fully geared towards the tasks of the users. Already ahead of the event, organisers were aware of the expected number of visitors and an international response to WerkTage 2014. However, none of them had anticipated that they would
